AAA - Buffalo Bisons (27-40)_______________________________________

COLUMBUS 7, BUFFALO 3 (Box) Illinois boy Pat Misch retired fifteen of the Clippers' first seventeen batsmen before a Misch mash broke out in the sixth. As for the Herd bats (10 Ks, 1-11 RISP), I misch Duda.

AA - Binghamton Mets (21-41)_____________________________________

BINGHAMTON 6, RICHMOND 4 (Box) Hey, we won! The two worst hitting teams in the Eastern League squared off and came out a-swingin'. Bingo batted around in the first -- for five runs -- and added a Reese Havens solo blast in the second. Tobi Stoner, who evidently didn't have his dankest stuff, likewise gave up a small pile of runs in the first couple of frames before settling down. In fact, everybody settled down. The hitters were all tuckered out, and gave us a seven inning diminuendo of peace and quiet.

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (34-31)________________________________________

PALM BEACH 10, ST. LUCIE 11 (Box) Holy moly! This seemed like it would be a very different sort of a ball game when Mets right hander Armando Rodriguez was busy striking out the world. At the end of five, Armando had fanned ten men and the Mets had jumped to a 8-2 lead. Then, the bullpen, oh boy. In the game recap, "Palm Beach Top of the 8th" is a fearsome block of small print that I don't advise you to read. (Culprits: Kyle Allen, John Church, Nicholas Carr, and J.B. Brown's glove.) After a grand slam the Mets were down by a pair. That is, until a pair of heroes had their chance. Puello tripled and found his way home. A few batters later, down to their last (eighth inning) out, Juan Lagares singled home the tieing and go-ahead run to give the Mets their alpine 11-10 win. Add it to Lagares's fourth inning two-run blast and you have yourself a youngster with a monster game. 

Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (36-26)__________________________________

ROME 1, SAVANNAH 2 (Box) The Gnats clinch their second straight First-Half Championship. How very odd that this exists. Anyway, Gnats have won 7 in a row and 19 of their last 23!

 Beaming Star of the Night 

RHP Armando Rodriguez and LF Juan Lagares share the billing. The one for (so to speak) baking an awesome cake, the other for running to the store and getting an awesome new one once the first one was dropped and stepped on. That sort of thing saves a party. Lagares's June line is a tingly .356/.408/.489.

Stinking Goat of the Night

Luis Hernandez and his 0-4 with a K and an E in the organization's one loss.
